Storyline

Johan is a 35 year old soccer fan, unemployed but living by his wits and charm. During the Soccer World Championships in 1990 all Swedes want to follow the games, including Johan who doesn't own a TV set. He gets himself invited to friends or goes to bars to see matches. He is pursued by two hit men, as he owes money for a grand piano he was supposed to sell. Johan seeks the help of down-and-out Kenneth to avoid bodily harm. Kenneth arranges for Johan to smuggle 15 Iraqi from Frankfurt to Sweden. On the same night Sweden plays the fateful game against Costa Rica... Written by Mattias Thuresson

Worst Swedish film ever (?)
8 October 2006 | by orsonSee all my reviews

This film must be the worst Swedish film I have ever seen! The plot is terrible, the dialog is terrible, the actors are terrible - even the ones that are supposed to be good actors. Also the film is very dull and boring, considering the fact that the topic is World Cup in football (soccer) and the tournament is very well known by Swedes as Sweden's worst ever with the results 1-2, 1-2, 1-2 still ringing in our ears as marching orders out of the tournament. If this is supposed to be a funny film the producer and the director have missed a crucial detail ... the humor! Anders Lundin might be a nice guy in private and can be funny on stage and in TV's children programs but he is not a film actor and he is definitely not funny in this one. The fact that Sweden were playing so very bad in this World Cup could have resulted in so many good jokes but the film makers have missed this totally. The only ones who can describe this as a great or a funny film must themselves be involved in this lousy production. Shame on you!
